An elite training program for youth flyers!

Adventure awaits! Flight School is the most rewarding way for kids ages 4-16 to experience the power of flight. Through one-on-one coaching, each Flight School student learns a progression of flying skills in a fun group setting. Every session is taught by an experienced flight instructor who is highly trained in safety standards and certified by the International Bodyflight Association (IBA).

What do Flight School students learn?

Flight school is most engaging and fun for kids to learn the sport of body flight.

  • Safety procedures
  • Proper use of flight gear
  • Mastery of a progressive series of flying skills

In their first sessions, they’ll learn basic flying positions like belly and back flying. Ultimately, each student will progress to learn advanced free fly skills that enable them to fly freely with other flyers in group formations.

Flyers also learn and practce key personal skills:

  • How to set and achieve goals
